IUMA (Internet Underground Music Archive) Collection

A description of the IUMA from the excellent zounds.com site:

The Internet Underground Music Archive was better known by the acronym IUMA. The IUMA was started in 1993 by three students at the University of California at Santa Cruz: Jeff Patterson, Jon Luini and Rob Lord. The three men worked together to create an online music archive that would help musicians and bands who weren't signed by a major label. The site allowed these unsigned artists to upload files and send them to fans. The site also enabled the artists the opportunity to talk with their fans. The IUMA was first part of the Usenet newsgroups.

In 1998, Emusic bought the Internet Underground Music Archive and changed the look and feel. Unsigned artists would sign up with the service and receive a website and URL devoted to their name. Emusic also allowed artists to use three different services to upload their music. They could use Internet radio, a live streaming feed, or a download option where fans could download the songs directly to their computer. Many of the early files were WAV and AIFF files, but they later added the option of MP2 tracks and MP3 files. The website included a special section where the artists could see the number of visitors and downloads they had received and some top visited artists received royalty checks from the company.

In the early 2000s the company held a 'Battle of the Bands' event known as Music-o-mania, which went into the record books as the biggest online contest of its kind in history. They also helped bands gain exposure by working with talk show host, Jenny Jones, who have these unsigned artists on her show.

The company was known for unusual publicity stunts. They held a contest in 2000 for expectant parents. Couples who legally named their child Iuma were entitled to receive a check for $5,000. Travis Thornhill and his wife were one of the first families to take the company up on its offer, by naming their child Iuma Dylan Lucas. Thornhill was in a band that used IUMA for business purposes and the couple thought it would make a good story. The company paid out the same amount to a number of other families, too.

In 2001 Emusic decided to reduce costs and laid off a number of employees working exclusively on IUMA. Some of those workers stayed on because they believed the website would return and be better than ever. However, in 2006, Emusic shut down the IUMA site and those workers all left. Vitaminic bought the IUMA format that same year, but the site never returned.

In August 2013, IUMA Co-Founder Jon Luini was interviewed about the historical significance and lessons learned in the birth of IUMA.

Before moving to Vancouver, the two brothers were surrounded by a vast amount of musical influences from their native Colombia. They didn't really hate Colombian music, they just didn't appreciate it because it was always there. Instead they were drawn to American influences such as jazz, rock and pop. After moving to Canada they realized the richness of their background and soon started re-exploring it. In Canada...

I started off singing r&b at the age of 8 and auditioned for Star Search at 12. I was asked back for a second audition but my parents decided I needed formal training and enrolled me at the School for Creative and Performing Arts.During my time there I was a member of the orchestra (2nd chair violinist) and a member of several choirs (one of which was nominated for a Grammy). After high school I began pursuing a record deal with a girl singing group (N'Satiable) but when the group broke up,...

Started out as The Gabriel Project in Atlanta, Georgia with Danyael recording all the instruments. The Unadored was born in 2002 and was a revolving-door of musicians. Nowadays, Danyael records for The Unadored on his own and hopes to sign a record deal in hopes of working non-stop to make great albums, and putting on a stage performance that will be unforgettable.

We'll cut the bullshit. Driving in Silence is a hard working trio from Baltimore, MD. Their music, is full of heart and passion. This band can only be done justice at a live show. Labeling music with genres and subgenres kills us. Take a listen and decide where you'd like to classify us.

Nicolas' music is not quite Folk,sort of Country,hints at Jazz,has suggestions of Latin,and is kind of Celtic.No she is not confused.Her music has been described as any of the above at various times but a purist in any genre would beg to differ.

England's Davinci Warhol offer up an exquisite & high calibre variant of pop-rock; eclectically wrought with lyrical insight, irony & production smarts that project a warm earthy ambiance. Davinci Warhol's music at times is whimsical & melancholic, whilst retaining an aura of altruistic purity & inventiveness that hearken back to seminal pop acts like 10CC & Squeeze. Unique emotive content & arrangements from a compositional & production standpoint are a trademark...

In her musical career she has had offers to tour Japan, Holland and Germany, be on a television show, has done the Star Search thing (it was fun), and always turned down opportunities so that she could stay home with her small children. They are older now and say,...

Creed is based 1990 in Finland, we have 3 ep:s and 1 Full album. Creed has made gigs mainly in Finland. The bands best part is the gigs , they are very live indeed. Creed had a major change in music at 1997 when our singerguitarist stopped singing and continued only playing his guitar. So we had a new singer whose voice is much more alternative , should i say.

Back in 1992, rapper/producer Voodo gave rise to an explosive, mystical fusion: Dark Theory. Owing to musical intuition, he decided to assemble his solo artists, and start working on a series of group tracks. As a result, right from the outset, Voodo's chemistry, alongside The Mighty Quin, Simply Black, Peapod and Ptah (the group's drummer and dancehall artist), was unmistakably simpatico. Add Calvin "The Truth" Wilds on bass guitar and Sean Willis on keyboards and you've got yourself...

I played mostly blues and shred stuff, but I eventually started to become more interested in music recording and production. As well as UK Garage and R&B music. I guess that why so many of my songs have those beats to them. So I got some computer recording software and just started recording what I wanted...

Brinton and Bobby had spent years refining their skills and playing ability before meeting Jason, a long awaited bass player who had the same musical interests and goals. In the beginning, it was simply having a good time jamming for friends and family. Writing music soon became second nature. The process of writing a song intrigued them and the new material just kept...

Sure, their music will provide enough cheese to constipate a classroom of dried fruit tasters...and the revolution will be a sloppy mess, but the world needs to know the horrific truth of the Lounge Singer.

Ursula's Curse is here to empower women to love and accept themselves as they are today. Confidence is what matters most--which is contrary to what the media has been telling us for a long time. The truth is, women have the right to recognize their individual beauty, own it, and then flaunt it!! Beauty isn't one size; it isn't one age. It is not at all what the magazines have been telling us for years. Time to take back what has always been rightfully ours: the ability to shine in our own light...

On the surface, Motherbirth is loud, abrasive, vulgar, and chaotic. But all of this is held together with aggressive riffing, tight chops, and bottom heavy melodies, resulting in a tight unit of relentless energy. Gordon Bolles provides the grinding six string work, supported by Dragan Stojkovski's pounding, punchy bass lines. Jake Samulski's precise drumming somehow keeps all of this mayhem in order. Overhead, Bryan Musial's vocals drift in compassionate melody, then take a nose-dive with...

Rock/hard alt. rock with a decidedly melodic slant. day ninety7 is sometimes heavy,sometimes poppy, but always catchy - the sound of modern rock. The emphasis is always on the song, especially the main hook. It can be a vocal phrase, a lyric, a hypnotic melody, a tight groove, or just the crunch of a guitar in the right spot. Then again, there's lots of guitar here. Tasty, explosive, laid back, and relentless and pounding when called for. It ALWAYS depends on what's called for in the song....
